    You are pushing to protect the "normal looking" gays at the expense of the rest of us.

    And the reverse, that you are pushing to protet transgenders at the expense of the "normal looking" gays, is certainly true as well.

      one who is invisible to gaydar?  :)

    •  You are mistaken. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm neutral on the bill.  I'm just telling you the outcome of what is proposed, not calling for it to be voted down.

      It helps to not tell me what I think.

      ... as one who would probably be labeled as one of those evil 'normal-looking' gays, I have VERY mixed feelings about this.

      I would happily, 100% support an ENDA that includes transfolk.  However, I get the feeling I am being asked to defer my own access to equal rights by taking an all or nothing stance.

      I'll point out that post-op trans folk, and some inter-sexed and others have been able to be legally married whereas my partner and I still can't be ... and I have celebrated those marriages and haven't once thought it was appropriate to tell those folks they "can't" get married until all of us can.  I happily take what support the trans community volunteers to give, without thinking I have the right to define what rights they should deny or accept based on my own agenda.

      So, as I say, I'm not sure what to think about this...

      Those who fail to learn from history...are invited to submit an application for a position in the Bush administration.

        ...that I am neutral on the current situation.  I still am.  If you think this can be passed and not vetoed, go for it.

        But I have my vision of the result and I've stated it here.

        Personally, when I was in Arkansas, I was told that I wouldn't be given a license to marry anyone...or either sex.

        He can't get married because he's living as a woman.

        Personally, I'm not going to get married until my daughter can also do so.  I'm a PFLAG parent and I believe in solidarity.
